India Circus by Krsna Mehta – Website Review and haul

Hi everyone, I am back after a long break of 2 months and now I am blogging right from my home country India. I am finally settled in my home in Bangalore and have a reliable internet connection. Anyway. I was contacted by India Circus team a few weeks ago for a website and product review. I browsed through their website and was drawn to their one-of-a-kind, funky, traditional and yet modern collections of lifestyle products. So I decided to accept the offer to review the India Circus website.

Z is for Zenith! What does it mean to me?

Welcome to the final post of the April A to Z Blogging Challenge. This is the second month-long blogging event that I have completed successfully but what makes this more special is that this time I participated with both of my blogs. And I am so proud to admit that I survived the challenge on both fronts. Hurray!

To write the Z post, I had a different subject in mind but then I scratched that to share a tiny little story about my (not technically) first blog.

YouTube – Why and How I finally started my YT channel!

YouTube has not been around for a decade in my life but I now cannot imagine my life without it! I have found “friends”, recipes, makeup tips, fun and motivation on this platform. Of course the concept of haters is not alien to me but I tend to focus on the positives. If it had not been for YouTube, I might never have made perfect Samosas without the tips from Tarla Dalal, I would never have known LORAC Pro palette if my favorite YouTuber had not raved about it etc. I have been watching YT videos for a little over … Read more

X is for X-factor!

Kudos to me for coming up this ultra original idea of writing a post on this theme for the letter X for my entry to the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Anyhow, the main reason I wanted to write about X-factor is that I feel I always highlight my shortcoming more than mentioning things I do well. I have recently concluded that I do not appreciate myself enough! So here I am discussing my X-factor(s)!

I do not have a boastful bone in my body so I hope it does not seem like that once you finish reading this post. … Read more

  • Indian Restaurants in Seoul (+review) – Part Two (Vegetarian’s Woes series)

    You are a vegetarian. So what do you eat everyday?

    These are the two questions I get asked the most when someone (non Indian) meets me in South Korea. My Korean friend finds it hard to believe that I have survived all my life without eating any form of meat. All of this does not come as a surprise to me anymore and I am always amused by their innocent questions because they have not lived without different forms of meat all their lives. I patiently and politely tell them that there are hundreds if not thousands of options available … Read more

    Tourist Places in Jeju: Udo Island (South Korea)

    Welcome to Things To Rave About! Today is the day of the letter U at the April A to Z blogging challenge and I have decided to write about Udo Island from Jeju, South Korea. I went to Jeju in June 2013 and fell in love with the scenic beauty evident at every inch of the island. Udo island is the biggest island near Jeju and has many tourist attractions under its belt. I, with my husband and our friends, spent a total of 4 hours at Udo Island and enjoyed every second of our visit. I would highly … Read more
